ūü•óBurmese Pickled Tea Leaves Saladūü•ó

Hello my loving Asean Hive community,

Hey, hey, hey.....Welcome to my new post. Are you all well and how are you? I'm all right. I hope you are all well too. It's been a while since I didn't talk about how to make delicious food. Today I am going to tell you about a food that is famous in Myanmar and that many people like.

Even foreign tourists often try and eat this food when they come to Myanmar. That food is 'Burmese Pickled Tea Leaves Salad'. Have you heard the name of that food before? First, I will tell you about the ingredients in this salad.


  • Various fried Peas
  • Natural Tea Leaf
  • Fried Peanuts
  • Dried Shrimp
  • roasted sesame

Today I used ready made product to make Burmese Pickled Tea Leaves Salad. In Myanmar, the Burmese Pickled Tea Leaves Salad is produced as a ready-made product under various brands. What I used today is a product called ' Pwaltaw Aote '. This product Burmese Pickled Tea Leaves Salad includes the ingredients shown above as well as Roasted Dried Tea Leaf. I have listed the included items with the picture below.

Various fried Peas

Fried Peanuts

Dried Shrimp

roasted sesame

Natural Tea Leaf

Roasted Dried Tea Leaf


In addition to the ingredients included in that ready made pack, I also used some vegetables. The vegetables I used are cabbage, tomato and chili. I cut all those vegetables as needed and put them in a plate.

First, I mixed Natural Tea Leaf and Fried Peanuts in a bowl. This pack contains 2 types of Natural Tea Leaf. One is made of tender leaves with a sour taste, and the other is tea leaves mixed with garlic, chili, and ginger. My father and I love tea leaves so much, so we added both kinds to the bowl.

I mixed all the vegetables I cut into that bowl. When making this salad, cut the cabbage thinly and use red tomatoes to enhance the taste of the salad. My dad and I like it spicy so we used about 5 chilies. I added as much salt and peanut oil as needed.

Then I mixed it all together and mixed it well. I personally prefer using peanut oil in this salad because it smells better.

Then I put them all on a plate. Leftover Fried Peanuts,
Dried Shrimp and I also mixed roasted sesame and put it on top of that salad. Now we have a delicious Burmese Pickled Tea Leaves Salad. Below are some pictures I took today.
